When I first got my CPL, figured on carrying one of my 1911's, (.45acp & .38 super), both full sized Govt models. Well, it didn't take much of that before I was in the shop looking at poly framed autos. On the odd occasion I carry a 1911 these days, it's in a CB Super Tuck.
Never argue with an idiot in public. People passing by won't know which one of you is the idiot.
